Terra Cotta Army | China

Arguably the most significant archeological excavation of the 20th century, the Terra-Cotta Army is a collection of life-sized terracotta sculptures depicting the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China.

The massive earthen army was buried with the Qin Shi Huang to protect the emperor in his afterlife and remained hidden for more than 2,200 years until discovered in 1974.
